No room on the knee

We have had an enforced week or so at home because of colds so decided today it was time for a foray into the outside world.
After lunch we went for a visit with eldest daughter and were  greeted at the gate by grand daughter's dog guarding the property.

This is Mack. He is staying with our daughter while
 his folk are away for a few days in Auckland.
Mack decided the best place to sit on a cool winter's day
 was my lap. Not to be left out Sooty also decided
 the best place to sit on a cool winter's day was my lap. 
Sooty has never sat on my lap in all the years
 I have known him, about seven!
There's a first time for everything I guess :)

Mack also usually sits on my GKB's knee, a privilege
 for my GKB as Mack has a bit of an aversion to men.
So don't ask me what was different today. 
I don't know. Jealousy perhaps?
It meant I couldn't move until it was time to go.
 Well I could have but I didn't.

And this was Mack as we left, all wrapped up in
 a blanket because his paws and ears were cold.

Have a good week,


  1. Such a sweet photo of you with the pets! I guess they are jealous of one another! Wishing you a very nice weekend.

  2. Hi Diana! Oh, I love this little story and little Mack is a cute little doggy. I'm sure you were enjoying the love of these little animals. I'm ready to get another dog. I need one! Thanks for popping in to see me and hope you have a nice weekend.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  3. With our weather being sooo hot, it still seems funny to me that other parts of this beautiful world can have snow and ice and COLD....cute cute animals..

  4. Very cute photos of everyone involved.

  5. So cute. Mack looks like quite the guard dog. You now have two new friends!

  6. Oh how cute. Looks like someone was jealous. The little dog looks alot like my daughters dog! Thank's for coming over and visiting my fence post. My DIL took the photo of the book with the fence in the background for me. I'll be writing a post this afternoon about the backstory. Thanks again for visiting. I'm following you now.

  7. They look so snug on your lap.

  8. Oh my,....I am giggling at the doggie in his blankie. so cute...

  9. Very sweet photo of you and the friends but I am surprised Mack didn't take your ankle and leg off as you walked in the gate.
    Where I live next to the border with Mexico we are overrun by nasty Chihuahuas. They are guard dogs and Chihuahuas bites are common.
    I am happy to hear your daughter has a nice one to look after.

    cheers, parsnip and thehamish

  10. Oh, my! Aren't they adorable? It didn't look like you minded having them on your lap. I can't blame you. What cutie pies!

  11. Sounds like jealousy to me. : )
    Adorable picture of Mack all wrapped up.

  12. Mack and Sooty are adorable and they look quite cozy on your lap :) Thanks for sharing your sweet photos. Have a blessed weekend. Hugs!

  13. Awww...those fur babies are both adorable! And yes, I'd say it just might be that jealousy thing...we've had that happen at our house too :)

  14. They both wanted your attention, didn't they? And I'm sure it felt nice and warm on your lap! Enjoy your week sweet lady. Hugs, Diane

  15. What a cutie pie that Mack is! Hope you are feeling better this week.

  16. Hope you're feeling much better by now! How cute are those sweet pets?! I especially loved the pic of Mack wrapped in the blanket.
